Yes, there is a market for them. Check your local Yellow Pages and look for companies that either make wood windows or recycle wimdows and doors. Here in norhern California, such companies would be Urban Ore (recyclers) or Wooden Window (manufacturer of wood windows). You may even make something and that sounds like a bonus!

There are a few places like that who have a use for a limited number of weights like Greg said, and that's great if you can get rid of them that way. But, unfortunately most people in most areas will not find a place that wants them. You have to be in an area where restoration of old windows is big. Your average midwestern town for example is not going to have a place that wants them.
You could always bring them to the scrap yard to be recycled.
I've had a few people ask for them for their fishing boats too.

W4U, Just wondering if any of the fishing lure companies in the Northland might use these? Any thought?

Great idea! Some of the muskie I have caught on the Bigfork River could handle a weight that size no problem.

I was also thinking maybe someone could paint them different colors and make wind chimes out of them. The only thing is, you sure wouldn't want to accidentally run into them in the dark. Ouch.
